Privacy Statement

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Video/Imaging DesignLine we have a few fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)

We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Video/Imaging DesignLine collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Video/Imaging DesignLine’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Video/Imaging DesignLine’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Video/Imaging DesignLine may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Video/Imaging DesignLine also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Video/Imaging DesignLine does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Video/Imaging DesignLine’s websites choose to interact with Video/Imaging DesignLine in ways that require Video/Imaging DesignLine to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Video/Imaging DesignLine gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Video/Imaging DesignLine collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Video/Imaging DesignLine. Video/Imaging DesignLine does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Video/Imaging DesignLine may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Video/Imaging DesignLine may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Video/Imaging DesignLine does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Video/Imaging DesignLine discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Video/Imaging DesignLine’s behalf or to provide services available at Video/Imaging DesignLine’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Video/Imaging DesignLine’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Video/Imaging DesignLine will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Video/Imaging DesignLine discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Video/Imaging DesignLine believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Video/Imaging DesignLine, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Video/Imaging DesignLine website and have supplied your email address, Video/Imaging DesignLine may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Video/Imaging DesignLine and our products. Video/Imaging DesignLine takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.

Video/Imaging DesignLine visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Video/Imaging DesignLine’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Video/Imaging DesignLine’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Video/Imaging DesignLine and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Video/Imaging DesignLine may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Video/Imaging DesignLine’s sole discretion. Video/Imaging DesignLine encourages visitors to check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
